I have been working at Starcom USA full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Excellent career growth and development opportunities; committed and hard-working leadership; best accounts in the business; strong training programs; good tools and systems; truly pushing the envelope and doing cutting-edge work. People work hard, but there truly is balance and support for people "having a life" outside of work.

Cons

The IT support stinks. There sometimes seems to be more financial driven decision making than talent driven. That being said, still seems better than most competitors in this industry.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

It's all about the talent.

    Pros

    Experience working on the biggest of the big brands
    Great benefits and vacation time
    Relatively little drama for an agency
    Job security is better than at other agencies
    A great deal of training for new hires (if they ask for it)

    Cons

    Accountants run the place
    It can be a 'sink or swim' environment - depending on your team
    Promotions tend to be more political vs your abilities and talent

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Overall, you do well. I think you should nurture the young talent a bit more. They all seem to leave soon after the 2nd year for better opportunities outside Starcom. It would also be nice to know how the business is doing from a financial perspective. Starcommers never really know until Maurice Levy gives his end of the year wrap-up.

    I worked at Starcom USA as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Great team, supervisors cared about development and providing a rich experience, relaxed work environment, casual dress code, lunch & learns saved a lot of money, vendor parties

    Cons

    Wish there were more opportunities for interns to get to know each other socially, did not get a chance to meet upper management as interns
